A story to tell

De Vere Selsdon Estate has an intriguing story to tell, with roots that go as far back as the 9th-century. Since then an Anglo-Saxon hall, a medieval estate of the Knights Templar and a Victorian country seat have been just a few of its former lives. In 1924 racing car driver and business man, Alan Doble Sanderson, bought the estate and turned it into a luxury hotel. The transformation took several years and was finally completed in the 1930s with architect Hugh Mackintosh adding an east and west wing and creating the neo-Jacobean style and red-bricked statement mansion that we know today.

Today, De Vere Selsdon Estate has begun a new chapter in its story. Its recent multi-million-pound renovation project has created a suite of newly designed bedrooms and a new restaurant & bar, as well as restoring many event spaces and the Orangery where afternoon tea is the served daily.
